Patterns of Learning Object Reuse in the Connexions Repository


Published May 1, 2009

Doctoral Dissertation abstract: Since the term learning object was first published, there has been either an explicit or implicit expectation of reuse. There has also been a lot of speculation about why learning objects are, or are not, reused. This study quantitatively examined the actual amount and type of learning object use, to include reuse, modification, and translation, within a single open educational resource repository Connexions. The results indicate that about a quarter of used objects are subsequently reused, modified, or translated. While these results are repository specific, they represent an important first step in providing an empirical evaluation of the frequency and some reasons for reuse, as well as establishing metrics and terminology for future studies.

[Update - Correction - 20100726]

On page 27, the end of the last sentence should read, " ...then the recycled module count would equal 28 not 30, the recycled module usage would equal 85, resulting in an overall recycle percentage of 28.00 and recycle rate of 3.0.", and the last row of Table 2 should have the following values: Recycling Count = 28, Recycling Percent 28.0, & Recycling Rate 3.0.
